Survey work in Belgium #19 (pics)

A last minute call made us start in Gentbrugge to survey a terrain near the freeway for the design of storm water holding basins.

Featuring John Minor

Last week was kind of special to me, John and his wife Becky who made a trip through Europe, would stop in Belgium to meet. Well we did meet at Monday evening for a small talk about what we would do the next 2 days, a regular survey day on Tuesday and some sightseeing on Wednesday.

A last minute call from Gwen, one of our engineers at the office in Ghent, made us start in Gentbrugge to survey a terrain near the freeway for the design of storm water holding basins.  It's an enlargement of a survey we did in June.  So we leave Kortrijk at 7.30 am. as usual to arrive in Ghent half an hour later.  First we search for an existing station setup point, a large spike in the pavement, and we'll RTK some new points that will serve as station points for the S6.  The terrain is a grassy plain, with a ditch around it surrounded by trees and canopy.
